5 Ways Global 6K Helps Your Church’s Outreach

5 Ways Global 6K Helps Your Church’s Outreach

by World Vision Church & Ministry Partnerships on January 22, 2020
Why 6K? It’s the average distance women and kids in the developing world walk for water every day – water that’s often dirty and contaminated with life-threatening diseases. Boost your community outreach (and global impact!) with the family-friendly Global 6K and run or walk for clean water. 

On May 16, 2020, hundreds of churches around the world will be hosted tens of thousands of runners and walkers of all ages. When you and thousands of others cross the finish line, you’ll be helping change the lives of women and children by freeing them from a life spent collecting dirty water. Every step you take is one they won’t have to!

Here are 5 ways hosting a Global 6K for Water can help your church and your outreach to your local community.
  1.  Its an event for every generation: Almost everyone of all ages can run, walk, or roll 6 kilometers. Its truly an intergenerational event!
  2. Reach your community in an authentic way: The hundreds of churches that have joined have found that its pretty easy to bring your community together to join you for a walk or run that benefits a good cause. People want to help and want to invite their friends to join them!
  3. Bring families together: Great time to share in fun, laughter and exercise while teaching compassion for others around the cause for clean water
  4. Empower new leaders: Millennials and Gen-Z are hungry for opportunities to live out their faith with causes around the world that matter to them. The Global 6K is a great opportunity to bring new connection to young leaders at your church.
  5. The 6K is an easy way to invite people to church: Invite them to the Global 6K on May 16th, which is a Saturday, and then invite them to join you at a service on Sunday to celebrate what they’ve accomplished.
Join our free webinar and learn about this fun and simple way your congregation can engage their community, create authentic connection AND make huge kingdom impact for some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
